justplainsomething asked: I think the Grayson thing comes down to me having just so little faith in DC Comics as a whole. I'm just not super excited about the concept and them using Dick for it because it could be played WAAAY too serious and grisly.
This is ABSOLUTELY 100% true. I have zero faith in DC to make this good. It is more likely to suck than be good. I probably should have said that.
But I’m a sucker.
At least for a few issues. Dick Grayson is one of my biggest weaknesses, and good spies who sometimes have to do bad things - Ethan Hunt, Jack Ryan, Jason Bourne - are another (and BTW, you’re totally right, Ward is super boring - I couldn’t be happier that he’s Hydra because now I don’t even have to pretend I care about him anymore.

Plus I’m a girl who thinks blatantly objectifying pretty boys with killer jawlines in faux military haircuts is a fun thing to do on a Wednesday. I’m pretty much dead center of what they say their target demographic is.
Whether they actually know that demographic well enough to write to us is another kettle of fish entirely.

Okay, but WHAT is Brett Booth’s damage?? He didn’t draw the cover in question! In *fact*, back when he drew TT, Wonder Girl’s breasts were a much more realistic size.
IF NO ONE IS TALKING TO YOU, DON’T GET BUTTHURT!
A little behind the scenes look of the early stages of Green Lantern the Animated Series.
My eternal gratitude to everyone who helped prove the doubters wrong.
This is both extremely uplifting and extremely infuriating.
Protip: This is a really bad question to ask when visiting the National Mall. We have 8 buildings surrounding the Mall, and a total of 19 museums, 9 research centers and the National Zoo. A S.H.I.E.L.D agent should know better!
(We think she means the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in this case.)
Four for you, Smithsonian Tumblr.
